HBO Says The Weeknd’s “Idol” Dropped 12% in Second Week Despite Big Dose of Gross, Vulgar Porn

HBO says “The Idol” dropped 12% in its second week. This is despite embarrassing soft core porn sex scenes with wooden acting from The Weeknd, aka Abel Tesfaye.

HBO says total viewing was down to 800,000 from the previous week’s 912,000. But their numbers include HBO Max, which is not monitored or substantiated.

First week numbers for “The Idol” on the HBO channel were just 232,000. If that number dropped commensurately, “The Idol” fell to just under 200,000 viewers.

********WARNING SENSITIVE MATERIAL********

There are really just a few perverts and hardcore Weeknd fans who are hate watching this show. Everyone else has moved on rather than hear their pop star utter the words “pussy” and “cock” in the same scene. And he can’t feel his face.
